Letters to the Press, March ’13
People always complain about high taxes, but I’m not seeing enough complaining now. This was and is a mess. People lost work days and money due to incompetence.

They claim that they are actually NYS officials and the fact that they serve a county function, receive county salaries and are elected by county residents is just a coincidence.
After the Suffolk legislature hires a politically connected patsy for its defense, it mysteriously refuses to appeal the judge’s decision that overturned a 20-year-old referendum, laughably citing “budget” constraints.
During all this, Albany and the Cuomo administration are nowhere to be found. The U.S. Justice Department refuses to intervene. Not one political leader voices any concern. Then, as if on cue, both major parties cross-endorse the Gang of Three, thereby making the election process a farce.
Now, it seems we are no longer being governed. We are being ruled. And Suffolk County has become the banana republic it has always strived to become. Now, I get it.
